    When you have a mosquito bite use clear finger nail polish it dries them up and gets rid of the itching.

    My son's friend's mother was from Mexico and she said to put a square of scotch tape on it.  I never tried it but my son said it worked.  Personally, I just avoided scratching them- it drives you insane for a short while, but they go away faster because you aren't working the serum further into your skin.

    I've found that the best thing that works is to mix 1 Tablespoon of Epsom salt with 1/2 cup of water.  I mix it up so the salt dissolves and then dip a wash cloth in and use as a compress on the bites.  It works so well I couldn't believe it...and the bites didn't itch at all the next day like they would normally.  I noticed that the bites would dry up and heal faster too.
